Yeah i believe that was the book that landed him the dead deal. I haven't read it yet but it is on a long list of books to get. All I have to do first is finish the Harry Potter series, which I have been slacking on. Another great non-dead book series is the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. This is one of my all time faves work of fiction. That and Catcher In The Rye.

For a good background of the early daze read "The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe. I am including a link to a picture of Tom Wolfe, Jerry Garcia and Rock Scully on the corner of Haight & Ashbury when Wolfe was researching the book.
Check out Rock passing a joint to Tom Wolfe!
Wolfe's descriptions of the early acid tests are priceless. A must read.

Excellent book choice, Dawg. Haven't read it in over 30 years but the descriptions of Neal Cassady at the wheel of Further ring down through the ages. Still have my copy and I'm going to dig it out again now.
